Washington, D.C. March 19, 2019: TEAMFund announced that it is accepting applications through April 30 for its 2019 Global Health Innovator Award. Any and all companies engaged in global health technology research and development are encouraged to apply. This will be the third consecutive year TEAMFund has presented the distinguished Global Health Innovator Award in conjunction with the MedTech Innovator Competition. The award will be presented during The MedTech Conference, Sept. 23-25 in Boston.
The $50,000 award presented by TEAMFund recognizes an early-stage medtech company that has a novel, appropriate and sustainable medical device for the world’s low and resource-constrained populations.
The award is designed to identify efficient ways to accelerate innovation and support the deployment of affordable and appropriate medical technologies in the developing world and other underserved populations. While innovative medical technologies have the potential to impact the lives of patients and health care workers worldwide, significant barriers keep many resource-constrained populations from accessing these technologies.
